[3DS] Super Smash Bros Demo

Super-Smash-Bros-3DS

 

yesterday i received a very pleasant email from Nintendo. this email told me i have the opportunity to play the Super Smash Bros 3DS demo a week before everyone else:

 

Congratulations!

You’ve qualified for a special demo of the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS game. There’s no limit on play sessions, and it’s available now—a whole week before the public demo.

We’re sending this demo to Club Nintendo members like you who achieved Platinum Status between 7/1/2013 and 6/30/2014, registered any Nintendo 3DS product, and chose to receive information from Nintendo at Club Nintendo. Hurry—all codes for this special demo must be redeemed by Sept. 19. Enjoy!

 

and i’ve been playing ever since i got this email.

 

first bit of information about the demo. you only get FIVE characters to choose from:

  • Mario
  • Link
  • Pikachu
  • Villager
  • Mega Man

 

and you get ONE stage (but kinda two stages)

  • Battlefield
    • but there’s a setting you can change before selecting the level, that basically turns the level into Final Destination

 

your battle settings that cannot be changed are:

  • 2-minutes long
  • unlimited stock
  • items are on for Battlefield
    • but items are off for Final Destination.

 

you can have up to 3 CPU characters in a 4-player free-for-all. and each CPU can be modified with the standard levels 1-9 setting.

 

there’s also local multiplayer, but it’s pretty laggy. i’ve only played against one friend of mine, and it hiccups a little too much for comfort. so much so that combos/juggles can be dropped easily. if local multiplayer is this bad, i wonder what Wi-Fi is like, i so hope this gets fixed somehow. the controls take some very getting used to. the thumb-stick or whatever it’s officially called will be the hardest thing to get used to. i’ve found myself using a different move than intended because i was pressing the wrong direction. and i’m not sure if directional influence (D.I.) is in the game, but that feels weird trying to do with the thumb-stick for some reason. i’ve never been good enough to wave dash, and i’m not sure if it’s cause i suck at it, or it’s not in the game, but i can’t perform any wave dashes.

 

but other than that, the game is great. i can’t wait for the final release on October 3, 2014.

[Deals] PS3, Final Fantaxy X/X-2

June 14, 2014No Comments

i was so excited when i got to play Final Fantasy X for PS3 at the 2013 PAX show. but then they announced this game is NOT cross-buy compatible. so i was annoyed that you would have to pay $40 for the PS3 version where both games are on a single disc, and another $40 for the PSVita version where one game is on the cartridge and the other game is a download voucher.

well Amazon has a pretty good deal right now, where Final Fantasy X/X-2 for the PS3 is only $25. i’m really tempted to get it, but it’s not quite at the price point i want. which is for $20. or how i like to think of it, if this were a cross-buy product from the start, the $40 price tag would be equivalent to $20 for the PS3 and $20 for the PSVita.

[E3] Smash Bros Invitational

in case anyone missed the live event Nintendo held Tuesday night. i found this video on YouTube of the entire event. it was very interesting to watch. especially watching pros who normally dominate 1v1, have to fight in a 4-player free-for-all. with items too.
